REVIEW: Wet n Wild Fergie Take On The Day Eyeshadow Primer posted at 9:35 PM
Wet n Wild Fergie Take on the Day Eyeshadow Primer ($5)
Never did I ever think I would be owning more than one eyeshadow primer at a time, but here I am with my third eyeshadow primer in my collection. I'm so tired of accumulating eyeshadows and lip products over and over again, so it's time to move on to a different category of makeup, it seems. (Although I would prefer not to become one of those b/vloggers that own 30+ foundations. I doubt that will happen. I don't even own one, yet.)
I wanted to try some of the Fergie collection after hearing (lulz, or reading) about it and seeing it in stores for about a year. Since I was grabbing an eyeshadow palette as well, I figured I may as well grab the eyshadow primer of all things and see if it works just as well or better or worse than my LORAC and Milani primers.
Location is a bit tricky. I know the Fergie collection was originally a Walgreens exclusive, but now I've seen them at Walmarts and CVSes. Not all Walmarts and CVSes will have the collection, and if they do, they might not have the entire collection. I got this primer at a CVS for 40% off.
Here is a first impressions and tutorial video that I did a few days ago if you would like to see these products in action.
I really like the packaging of this product. The product comes out in a nozzle that makes it easy to control. Part of the reason why it's easy (or easier) to control how much product comes out of the tube is because this formula runs on the thicker side, but it's not so thick that you're going to spend a lot of time getting product out, like you would with the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer.
Because of how thick it is (it's thicker than UDPP, TFSI, Milani, and LORAC primers), it's hard to spread all over my lid and it cakes up in some areas and makes eyeshadow become cakey too. I have this issue with all primers I've tried, but it's more apparent with the WNW. Since I've gotten speedier with the blending, I've managed to not have it cake up the more recent times I've used it.
Using mostly WNW products for this look.
I can't believe I'm saying this, but out of UDPP, Milani, and LORAC (It's been a while since I've used TFSI, but I know it's my favourite higher end primer.), and this WNW one, this is by far the best eyeshadow primer I've tried. Because of how thick it is, it ends up being a little sticky, and it really makes the shadows stick! When I wear LORAC and Milani, I see a little creasing before my day is over, but with this? No creasing! At all! I'm so amazed and it's the least amount of money.
There was a con or two with this product, but the awesome wear time and the fact that it makes my eyeshadows gorgeous beat the cons and I'm glad I procured this primer. When I run out of LORAC and Milani, I won't go back to them. I will continue with this and repurchase this. I love my Too Faced Shadow Insurance, but if Wet n Wild does an awesome job and it's only five dollars, why pay twenty for eyeshadow primer? Primer is a boring product. I'll save my $20 for something fun.
